You want to trade, you know that trading can be an “easy” way to make money. And, if you get good at it, you know you can quit your job and trade for a living. Or, you can fund your retirement. Or, you can buy that car/house/motorcycle/vacation that’s currently just out of reach.

Swing trading is a good way to get into trading – commissions and slippage don’t take such a large chunk of each trade if the trades are longer term. Longer term trading means you are looking for the larger profits that can be made over days and weeks, thus commissions and slippage don’t matter that much.

Do you have any of these problems?

  • You want to build wealth, but…
  • You don’t know enough to pick trades
  • The market is a bit intimidating
  • You don’t have time to do the analysis to choose trades

Are you on overload when you think about taking a trade?

  • Bombardment from everywhere, buy, sell, sit aside, trading tips, “sage” advice…
  • Completely different advice from different sources…
  • What to do?

May I compliment you and say that your letter is extraordinary.

You need to be familiar with WHICH news affects the market you are trading, and HOW and WHEN that market is affected.

Watch this video, where I explain it in detail.

Whether you trade futures, stock, forex, your trades will be affected by news. You need to be careful when news comes out that your market will react strongly to – your trading platform can become overwhelmed with data and you won’t be able to keep up. For example, here is a chart showing the behavior of the ES emini when the FOMC announcement occurs.

News Affects Trading, No Doubt About It

If you are day trading, you should check early what news will be coming out and how likely it is to have an effect on the markets. A site you can go to for both of these is


If you see a red star, you will know that that news is likely to make the markets move.

Red star news

A gold star is much less likely to move the markets, and a dot or no dot or star is news the markets will likely ignore.

News not affecting the markets

Watch your chart(s) carefully during these news events for many days and weeks, and you will begin to see the pattern of reaction to news. There is nothing like personal experience to teach you what is likely to happen. Take some simulated trades during the big news reactions, just to see what happens on your platform. Then, when and if you take actual trades during big news events, don’t be surprised if real fills are not really the same as simulated fills!

I myself just stay away from daytrading during news. It is too risky for me.
